    No, read the tutorial. An in-place upgrade repair keeps all your settings, installed apps and documents. It's not a last resort, it's no more disruptive than an upgrade to the next version of W10. It does however require a bootable windows in order to start it. A clean install is your last resort.

    This is potentially slightly misleading. I know what you meant - you need the iso to create a boot drive, or a bootable flash drive etc. with files on it.


    You do not actuallly boot from a flash drive.

    Whilst running windows, mount iso as a drive, or insert flash drive and run setup.exe.

    @Adorianu777

    You mentioned that you are still on Win 8.1. Maybe it is time to take the leap and upgrade to Win 10 pro. Doing so might resolve your issue. You still have a chance to upgrade for free. Here is a link to do just that:

    Can You Still Get Windows 10 for Free? Yes! Here’s How

    If after upgrading, the issue persists, try to post back.

    Windows 10 Pro x64

    Please help - sfc /scannow finds corruption on new machine


    Hi all.

    I'm setting up a new computer that my brother and I purchased for my father. It is a new HP Envy 17 running Windows 10 Pro x64.

    On a factory-new machine with no files installed, I noticed that sfc /scannow resulted in a finding that corruption was present which could not be repaired (source files not found). Reinstalling the OS from the HP recovery image on the hard drive does not make any difference (corruption still found). The recovery image appears to be based on Windows 10 Pro x64 version 1703, OS build 15063.250.

    Through Windows recovery, I tried restoring the machine by using the option to keep data and this does not correct the problem (sfc /scannow finds corruption).

    Through Windows recovery, I tried restoring the machine by using the option to REMOVE all data and this DOES resolve the problem (sfc /scannow does not find any corruption when the machine boots up). Obviously, I could start from this point and just track down the missing drivers and HP software that my dad will need, but I would like to figure out how to fix the recovery partition so that restoration will automatically have the proper start up drivers, etc. (plus quitting without figuring out why this is happening will continue to bother me).

    Thinking that the recovery image is defective, I had HP send me a new copy of the recovery image on a USB. However, restoring from the HP recover usb once again results in corruption found by sfc /scannow.

    Running "dism /online /cleanup-image / restorehealth" completes successfully but thereafter running an "sfc /scannow" still finds corruption that can not be repaired. This doesn't make sense to me and I would very much appreciate any assistance in pointing out what I'm doing wrong.

    Thank you!

    Hi there, Alex. Welcome to Ten Forums.

    You're not doing anything wrong. It looks like the OEM partition image is corrupt somehow. I think most here wouldn't use those anyway. IMO a waste of time with all the "crapware" that comes along with. However, this may void your warrantee. Either tell HP to get it right or check to see if a clean install would void the warrantee. The recovery partition can just sit there until warrantee has expired to be deleted later if need be. Windows 10 is perfectly capable of installing all necessary drivers and software to run correctly.

    If this is what you choose, make a recovery image disk after installation, but, again, check the warrantee.

    Alex, welcome to Tenforums.

    If we knew what errors you were getting with sfc /scannow, it would help. Not always, but often they are benign or can be corrected without major work. You're free to do a complete wipe and a clean install, but maybe if we look at the errors, they are fixable.

    Download and Run this batch file: CBS_SR_TO_TEXT.bat

    It will produce a text file on your desktop showing only the SFC SR entries from the CBS log. It is much smaller than the entire CBS log. Please post the text file here so we can take a look at it.

    Here is the tutorial for posting attachments on Tenforums:

    How to Upload and Post Screenshots and Files at Ten Forums Windows 10 Tutorials

    The text file will look similar to this:

    sfcdetails.txt

    Thanks, TC

    Thank you very much for the .bat file! That makes troubleshooting a whole lot easier and I will definitely keep it around for future use.

    I don't mind doing a full restore, but I'd prefer to get the issue with the recovery partition sorted out.

    From what I can tell, the problem files seem pretty innocuous but I'm not sure how to replace them.

    They may be innocuous. Like I mentioned, if you could post the .txt file, we could look at it and maybe advise. Without it, we have no idea what the issue may be. That is entirely up to you, though. Post back if you want someone here to assist any further.
